Managed IT for professional services firms

Transform your business competitiveness and efficiency

Competition in the UK’s professional services sectors is intense. Digital transformation isn’t just offering new opportunities, it’s also challenging business models. Clients are demanding high standards in terms of the personnel they deal with and the end-to-end client experience they expect. As a result, firms face increased pressure to be more productive, work smarter and field a talented workforce. Failure to address these challenges is likely to result in declining billable hours and reduced partner profits.

Finding, attracting and engaging a talented workforce is a key priority and critical success factor for medium-sized professional services firms. In-demand consultants with hard-to-find skills are besieged by unsolicited job opportunities. IT plays an important role because it can help deliver what millennial digital natives most value: collaboration, a supportive business culture and access to web-enabled modern technology. To win the fight to attract new talent these qualities are just as important as security and pay if your employer brand is to prevail.

Most leading professional services firms are realising that today’s workplace is not delivering and are adapting. Professional services firms must not only be a great place to work, they must differentiate themselves through their unique cultures and modern working practices. Technology has a fundamental role to play in their success.

Our team of highly experienced IT consultants are well-positioned to advise you on the right approach to IT planning. We can bring your business a range of benefits:

  • Stronger collaboration delivers better results – cloud-based software enables files to be worked on together more easily and simultaneously leading to improved outcomes while better telephone and data networks improve both inter-company and client liaison


  • Flexible working creates a more engaged workforce – hosted desktops allow your team to access their documents wherever and whenever they wish. This makes your workforce truly mobile, even able to use their smartphones to work and securely access documents and data


  • Intelligent automation frees time for higher value, billable tasks – software can help manage client records, billing and bookkeeping, schedules and appointments, deadlines and facilitate compliance with regulations. When routine activities are automated, staff time can be used on more rewarding – and billable – activities, or new business.
  • Vigilance, compliance and security create peace of mind – professional services firms deal with confidential client information so regulatory compliant systems and processes with first rate IT security, backups are essential


  • Costs are better managed – typically reduces your overheads and better aligns your IT expenditure to the scale of your operation. Your costs change when you change.


  • Business model transformation – from automating every day tasks to harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning tools, technology is helping professional services firms re-imagine their business model and create new opportunities
